Search Engine and Browser Privacy for Lawyers (10/19/23)

Includes a Live Web Event on 10-19-2023 at 2:00 PM (CDT)

Web browsers and search engines store and track large amounts of user data. The erosion of online privacy has been gradual and subtle over the years, but it has significant implications for lawyers whose search histories and web activity likely reveal much information about their work and clients. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that has long promised greater privacy. The company recently launched a web browser that offers the same promise. How seriously should you take this promise, and is it worth abandoning your current web browser and preferred search engine to use DuckDuckGo? In this seminar, we’ll break down what the platform actually offers and how much benefit it might provide to lawyers looking to increase their online privacy so that they might better protect their sensitive data (and that of their clients). 

Anne Haag is a Practice Management Advisor at the Chicago Bar Association.

She is also a certified crisis counselor and volunteers as a patient advocate in the ER. She is currently working towards her Masters in Social Work through the University of Illinois Chicago in hopes of becoming a licensed mental health professional.
